Credits

The Lutz Mommartz Film Archive is a collection of the film works of German film-maker Lutz Mommartz, considered to be one of the pioneers in the film genre known as the "other cinema". Mommartz was born in Erkelenz in 1934 and spent most of his life in Dusseldorf. He began making movies in 1967 and eventually became Professor of Film at the Kunstakademie Munster. He still lives and works in Germany, dividing his time between Dusseldorf and Berlin.

Shotlist

..... a ten minute Opus, which commentates Mommartz in such a way: "a girl communicates with the spectator." More indeed does not happen: .... but the it desireful face gives the viewer a hint, that this is not obligation exercise, but love. Mommartz is among the German film producers the purist. His scenes concentrate on the basic elements of movement and peace, of strain and slackening. He forces the spectator with the suggestiv power of repeated banality into the rhythm of its cinematic action.

(Thomas Schröder Die Welt 12.10.68)

.... The spectators see high points of the love in the face of a young actor.....

(Stern 17.11.68)

.... consists of a large admission of a woman face turned in only one attitude. Expression and movement are clear: the woman sitting on a man and reaches twice a high point.

(Film Jan. 69)

.. one short work of art is the face of a girl having two ethereal orgasms, and rather nice, too: happy and art no doubt.

(The Observer 30.8.70)

I am 59yrs old.I experienced the so called hippie-freelove-woodstock thing..but I cant remembr ever having a woman look at me like this one looked at "ole Gerd". Lucky boy. And I dont really care for porn etc. I dont care to watch other people do what I can do better? But I couldnt take my eyes away from this charming little film. It makes you feel good. Its a tonic for the soul.

This film is brilliant and lovely and unsettling.
The glitches and pops make it perfect.

Subject: Beautiful.
This is the most beautiful woman i have ever seen. I doubt that I will ever see a person with such lovely expression, and it's great that this is on film.

I must say I m a geek for Richard Kern Experimental 16mm BW and Warhol 16mm BW which could lead me to say that I like this one
but much more than that as I edited it and busted it from my G4 Powerbook into my living room wall while listening to
Tchaikovsky 's Elegia, Serenade For String Orchestra in loop and totally adore it
A 5 stars must see
